Good to know about personal insurance
Why should you take out personal insurance?
Most people take out insurance on their home, vehicles and the most important valuables. However, the most important asset – health – often remains uninsured.
It pays to take out personal insurance to make sure that you get the best possible care if you run into health problems. An illness or injury typically occurs suddenly and unexpectedly. With a personal insurance policy, you can ensure that you get the best care without delay and quickly return to your normal life. Personal insurance also provides financial security for your family if you, as the policyholder, die due to an illness or injury.
When you take out personal insurance with OP, you also gain access to a free-of-charge Pohjola Health Advisor service. Should you have any health concerns, you can call the Health Advisor, who will assess your condition and, if necessary, refer you to a suitable health care professional. As our insurance customer, you can seek care conveniently at a Pohjola Health clinic. The clinic’s claims service desk will attend to your insurance matters on your behalf: you only pay the deductible and we will handle the rest. You do not have to file a separate claim. Choose the personal insurance you want from above and read more about the benefits of the insurance in case of illness or injury.

Health insurance – voluntary personal insurance provided by OP
OP's health insurance provides cover for your health throughout your life. You can tailor a policy to suit your needs and choose whether you want it to cover only expenses arising from injuries or those arising from both illnesses and injuries. Insurance against injuries for yourself or your loved ones provides compensation if, for example, you need to seek medical care when you have fallen over or hurt yourself in a leisure time accident. If you extend the cover to include illnesses as well, you can also claim compensation for a sudden illness and for any medical expenses incurred due to seeing a doctor. Insurance is also there to help you if you are referred to an MRI examination, for example, or an operation or rehabilitation as a result of an illness or injury.
